    full-bodied car

    Does a "full-bodied car" refer to a "stock car"?

    Last weekend, I just came back from Indianapolis 500, which is not a NASCAR race. It is an open-wheel style car. NASCAR is a full-bodied car. But I've done both over the years.

    And what does "done" mean in the context?

    Thank you.

    Re: full-bodied car

    Did you consider using Google first? I just Googled "full-bodied car" and got plenty of useful hits. Here's one of them.
    It's not completely clear but I would assume "done" means "watched" or "driven" depending on whether the writer went to the Indianapolis 500 as a participant or a spectator.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    On the left is an Indy car. On the right is a NASCAR car.

    You can see that the NASCAR car has a body that resembles an actual car that you could buy in any dealership.

    To me it suggests neither a driver nor a spectator, but a mechanic, tire fitter, painter, etc - someone who does cars in some way.
